 I have a LG GH22LS30 DVD burner and a BH10LS30 BluRay burner. Both have been burning DVD for years, but about a week ago my DVD burner took days just to burn a 10 minute clip. The light flashes once every minute or so. Here's what I've done so far:
-Checked in Device manger the IDE/ ATA/ATAPI controllers, both drives say "Ultra DMA Mode 5" under the advance settings.
-I also deleted the ATA channels, so that during a reboot, it recreated them.
-I updated the unit firmware at LG
-I tried different dvds
-I tried the same brand on another pc and it works and burns in less than 3 minutes.
-I have Windows vista and did not install anything or upgrade.
-Ran antivirus software
Here are some pics...

A brand new DVD burner is less than $20, including shipping.

Remove the troublesome device...put it in another system long enough to see if it burns properly there.


The results should speak for themselves and bring problem to focus.
